The view from the Bayview Hotel, Ballycotton, where myself and 7 others of the Old Road Painters group had our Summer night out. What more could you wish for , a view like this and superb food and wine. It was wonderful to dine “en plein eire”.

Here’s another one taken from one of my sketchbooks, this time a wading bird called a Bar Tailed Godwit.
Sketched this Blackbird a couple of winters ago, then put in the colour later.

  1. I love birds and these are great paintings, love the contrast between the two of them (one is light and the other more darker, perfect for different seasons). I love them both but my favourite is the top one. We have ton of black birds and starlings here and they sure know how to make a show in our trees early in the mornings : )

    Happy Summer!!!
